#BookReview – A STOLEN HEART by @KayelleAllen #SF

Coinciding with release day for A STOLEN HEART, you can see what I thought of the book in my review below. As we are staying in lockdown for at least another 3 weeks the garden and house will continue to benefit. We’ve finished digging the veg garden (yay!), and the polytunnel has gone from this […]

#BookReview – A CORPSE AT THE CASTLE by R.B. Marshall

Lock down update: the veg garden is nearly there! Just one last bed to dig at the far end, against the fence. So far we’ve planted strawberries, carrots, beetroot, Brussels sprouts, Savoy cabbage, Jerusalem artichokes, rainbow chard, potatoes (2 varieties), peas, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower and courgettes. Next, onward with the polytunnel and indoor planting – […]

Update & #BookReview – SERANG by C.S. Boyack #coming-of-age #fantasy

Lock down update: the garden is coming along nicely, we’ve dug over 7 of the 10 raised beds and planted 6 of them. The polytunnel still needs sorting out, but we’ve made a start – tomatoes are in the bit of bed that has been dug, and it’s a great place to germinate seedlings. And […]

#BookReview THE LIGHT: WAKE-ROBIN RIDGE #4 by Marcia Meara #supernatural #murdermystery

How are you all doing out there? Reading more? For me it’s a time of rediscovering my creative writing mojo – I’ve finally begun The Five Kingdoms book #4 – yay!!! 2019 was such a horrendous year for me, I could only write non-fiction. I must be one of the few who can honestly say […]

#BookReview:Venom of the Black Lotus by JC Nelson

One of the few upsides of the coronavirus lock down, is that I have more time to read. Having completed my move to the Scottish Highlands at what could not have been a better time (so much space, so few people), I am slowly unpacking, a bit at a time, and organising my stuff. I […]

I gave Deborah Jay’s novel – The Prince’s Man –  5/5 stars and posted this review on both Goodreads and Amazon: I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started reading ‘The Prince’s Man’, but the reality blew me away. The story is a grown up fantasy reminiscent…

##BookReview – THREATS OF SKY AND SEA by Jennifer Ellision #EpicFantasy #Elementals

I am always drawn to read other author’s takes on elementals, hence this pick. “In a kingdom of Elementals, she thought she was ordinary. She was wrong.”   Here are my thoughts… Threats of Sky and Sea by Jennifer Ellision My rating: 5 of 5 stars 16-year-old Bree knows nothing beyond her simple life, helping […]
